Rebecca enjoyed a career in advertising for fashion until deciding to follow her passion and earn her Master’s in Nutrition and Food Science. The emphasis in this program was nutrition education where Rebecca originated a county wide program that brought healthy, safe birthday parties into class rooms. Her Master’s thesis was a research based project linking artificial sweeteners to neurological disorders. Additional projects included comparing the health and safety of bottled water to tap water.
